Halger is accused of sexually assaulting a child multiple times between 2017 and 2021 while Hagler’s family was babysitting the child, according to the prosecutor’s office. The family reportedly stopped watching the child some time last year and the child reported the alleged abuse to Xenia police in October.

When detectives interviewed Hagler, he admitted to sexually assaulting the child on multiple occasions, according to the prosecutor’s office.

Hagler was indicted on two counts of rape in December, according to court records. The second count was dismissed when Hagler pleaded guilty.
